      Nic is correct -- nobody wants to deal with $ the day of - we take 20% deposits (plus 100% travel costs) and the rest is due 1 week prior. - 50% I think is a little big - but for the simple reason of this......... not that you will.... but occasionally, brides reschedule their wedding, or call it off... and normally that first payment is not refundable.

        Yep, mine was 50% up front and the other 50% no later than 2-weeks before the DW. I am about to send off the final payment.

            How are you paying the photographer? Wire transfer? Paypal?
            My photog wants me to deposit the money into his account. To be perfectly honest, I'm still trying to find the best way to do that.
            I knew he was the man I would marry as soon as we met...

              Someone else put it right in their account. I can't remember who, but maybe they will chime in. If they are reputable it's probably not a problem. Paypal takes a chunk of the money, which is why he probably wants it right in his account.

                This is very regular for alot of vendors, if you have a problem with the whole 1/2, he/she should be able to work with you, otherwise if youre comfortable with them and feel their totally reliable/legit, book away! BEST WISHES!!! :)
